Providing support for linux at UEA

There are a variety of linux resources at UEA.

UEA Linux Desktop

We provide and support the UEA Ubuntu Linux desktop that conforms to UEA security and authentication standards.


Generic linux machine for simple linux tasks.  Also acts as a gateway to all UEA networked machines -  ssh to and then ssh to your machine.


If you have jobs that require large memory, long run times, multiple runs, or parallel work you should consider using the High Performance Computing facility at UEA.

Connecting from outside UEA

You  need to connect to the uea network using vpn.

sftp service

From time to time there is a need to exchange large data sets with colleagues external to UEA (data that are too large to send via email).  If you need to do this please :
